Very pleasant area in Midtown Atlanta - Where Virginia meets Highland a great number of historic bars and restaurants . if coffee shops and tea rooms are your thing - they're about too . many often have the same idea so Highland's traffic can be annoyingly slow .

This is a really nice neighborhood with various restaurants that are definitely worth a visit. Also, a very fancy residential neighborhood

Amazing only if you are used to malls. I am used to walkable streets. In fact I saw my First Mall Cop on a Segway in Atlanta

Great neighborhood for younger people. Lots of walkers. Bike riders. Trendy restaurants. Fun stores to walk through. Hard to find a place to park. Residential real estate very expensive.

Wonderful place to eat, shop and enjoy. Close to Piedmont Park and right off the beltline. Cute shops and great restaurants. Perfect to bike or stroll.

If you're looking for THE neighborhood in Atlanta, it has to be Virginia-Highland. Distinguished old architecture (with some new construction and renovations). Lots of local shops and restaurants. Fun place to go. If I had to live in Atlanta, I'd look here...if I could afford it!

Va. Highlands is a fun, active neighborhood just East of Downtown Atlanta. There are lots of fun eateries and bars as well as fun and eclectic shops. The streets are active with walkers, bikers, runners, dogs, gay, straight etc. that live in the nearby bungalows, condos and apartments. This is a desirable place to live for the young and active...

Great area for dining and hanging out. It has a plethora of choices for all types of pallets. You can get steak, seafood, sushi, or even typical (but good) bar food. The tapas restaurant is great for food and drinks. I would recommend going early because parking can be atrocious and difficult to find. Get a drink somewhere, eat some... More

Was in the area while visiting family. Ate dinner here on evening. Lots of great choices for food. Parking is a problem, as it most of the areas in Atlanta.

Though parking can be a mess, you will find great restaurants here, without affectation. Going Coastal is fine for scallops. Illegal Food and Highland Tap both serve great burgers. Murphy's has stood the test of time, and Surin of Thailand draws crowds as well. Just down the road is the fabulous San Francisco coffee shop with great vibes.
